sorry for the newb question, but i was ordering some older chauvet intimidator scanners and see it mentions open gobo... does that mean its blank where I can have my own custom gobo inserted? or something else
Guys below know what they are talking about

Does it say "Open Gobo" or "Replaceable Gobos."
Open Gobo means you have an "open" gobo, as in just a circle, which is not replaceable.
"Replaceable Gobos" means you can install you own.
What is the full model name of the scanner(s)?
These are Gobos:
The last gobo on the bottom right is what's know as an "Open Gobo." Meaning there is nothing there so that it can be used as a spot. You can't put your own gobo in there.
I also don't believe any older Chauvet scanners had replaceable Gobos.
cool, thank you for the response guys, it was the dmx-600 intimidator 1.0, and after finding the manual online, no mention of any being replaceable, thanks again
Yeah those scanners simply have a gobo wheel with colored glass glued over them. Only way to modify gobos is to replace the entire gobo wheel.
As stated, open gobo stands for a spot.
